Kokushi Midwest Judo the only dojo in Champaign-Urbana dedicated to the martial art of judo.

Judo is a great workout for both kids and adults!  Our first priority is your safety, so we do teach you how to fall those first few classes.  But once you learn that skill, you will find judo to be very rewarding whether you are looking to get in shape, meet new people, learn a new sport and some self-defense.

Everyone is welcome to train with us, despite age, race, gender, background, etc.  

We host several clinics throughout the year and are often visited by high level judoka as they pass through town. 

 Judo is not just a sport -- it is an education.


Why train with us?

  • We have just opened a state of the art dojo, complete with Fuji Mats and a sprung floor, allowing for the softest fall from the hardest throws!  We have plenty of seating, bright windows, 2 dressing rooms and have gis in stock.      
  • Judo is fun!   It is the second most popular sport in the WORLD (soccer is #1)

  • We are the only USJF/USA Judo sanctioned club in the Champaign-Urbana area.  That basically means that we have high standards!
